The Michelin Primacy MXV4 is available for most passenger cars and SUV’s. It’s an All-Season tread pattern and compound, but what I find interesting about this tire is it really doesn’t look like what I would consider an All-Season tread pattern. Which is probably why the tire lasts so long.
If you want to make sure Mamma and the kids are safe, this is your tire right here! Consumer survey results at one major online tire retailer rated it number 1.
Workmanship & Materials Warranty: 6 Years/60,000 miles / Free replacement for first 2/32″ of wear, then prorated to 2/32″.
Against other tires in the Grand Touring All-Season tire category, the Michelin rated best in ride and handling qualities. Same thing with dry handling, the MXV4 ranked number 1. The only place this tire ranked #2 was in wet handling behind the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity. Watch video to verify.
What Others Are Saying

99% of the feedback for the Michelin Primacy MXV4 is from folks who rate this as an excellent tire that they would buy again. A lot of people said they got 70,000 plus miles out of set. And a few said they only changed tires because winter was coming.
Cons: There’s always somebody who’d complain, even if they were hung with a new rope. That guy only rated the tire at 2 stars and said he liked his Michelin Hydro Edge’s better. If you have had poor results with this tire, feel free to post your results in the comments below. Now that I think about it, the guy has legitimate criticism if he lives somewhere that gets a 100 inches of rain a year. He probably should go with the Hydro Edge instead.
Buy or Don’t Buy? Yes. I would buy these tires for my wife’s Honda. Being the top rated tire against 19 others, there’s not really a lot I need to say here other than just buy them. They’ll be just fine. And, they’ll cost less money over all. Cheaper tires always cost more money to run over time. You’ll pay a little more up front for Michelins, but you’ll save a ton of dough in the long run.
